Rickie Fowler had another chance to win a PGA Tour event this past weekend at the Waste Management Phoenix Open. Until, that is, the back nine on Sunday, when for whatever reason nothing went right.
There are a lot of stats to like about Rickie Fowler’s career so far but one isn't so impressive.
Rickie Fowler is the poster child (er, guy, as he nears age 30) for all things cool on the PGA Tour, both in promotion and practice. So when golf’s Leo DiCaprio says he was “a little disappointed in some of the stuff that was said” by some obnoxious fans during the early stages of his opening round at last week’s Wasted Management Open, Phoenix, you might have a problem.
Popular names occupied the leader board at the outset of play on Sunday, Gary Woodland’s not among them. It’s not that he is unpopular, only that as part of a cast that included Mickelson, Fowler and Rahm, Woodland was an extra.
It was an electric scene on moving day at the Waste Management Phoenix Open, with the threesome of Phil Mickelson, Jon Rahm and Xander Schauffele feeding off the crowd’s energy and vaulting into contention. Meanwhile, a few groups behind them, Rickie Fowler didn’t have much going his way, sitting at even par on his round through 12 holes.
First it was Rickie Fowler singing the praises of Rayhan Thomas. Now Rory McIlroy has had his say.
Cue the Jaws theme tune and dust off the Falcon Trophy. Rory McIlroy lurks ominously just a shot off the lead and will surely, finally, gets his hands on the most tantalising prize in golf - save for a certain green jacket - to thus far elude him.
Rickie Fowler was among the first to congratulate Rayhan Thomas as the Dubai-based amateur confirmed the next chapter of his seemingly inevitable rise to golf’s professional ranks.
